The Chicago Auto Show; the largest in the nation and one of the largest in the world (by volume and attendance). This year the snow and the economy have reduced the press turnout but the cars as well as debuts were still to be found.

For BMW fans the most important debut here was the Alpina B7. A car that is Alpina ‘s second go at a 7er in the US and one that represents the Alpina brand particularly well. 21 ” wheels that are 21 lbs. That is Alpina in a nutshell as well as the B7. Engineering effeciency, power, performance and of course, comfort. We ‘ll have more on that car later. But until then, enjoy the show.
